The Best Laundry Room Organization Hacks You Can Try
1. Mount a Wall Organizer in your laundry room to hang the brooms and trays
I have mounted a wall organizer on the right side of my washer. I hang the brooms, mops, and trays here.
You will never need to kneel down to find your brooms and mops ever again. I also have a similar one in my kitchen.
2. Place a few floating shelves
I installed a floating shelve above my washer. It helps me to store all the necessary items while I do laundry.
I made three separate sections and attached them to the wall. You can also put a small basket on the floating shelve to store your undergarments.
3. Make a DIY hanging rack to hang your clothes
I hate to fold my clothes right away after doing laundry. I made a DIY hanging rack so that I can organize them later on.
I keep around 10 hangers in the rack. It is enough for me to hang my shirts, dresses, and other clothes. You can place the hanger on any corner of your laundry room.
4. Make a few cabinets for your laundry room to store items
When I moved into the house, I didn’t have separate cabinets in my laundry room. I decided to add a few cabinets to store all the items.
I installed a few cabinets myself. It helps me to keep all the items like detergent, paper towel, soap, tide pods, etc.
5. Attach a wire shelf above your washing machine to place laundry baskets
I prefer to use small baskets to store my clothes. I have a wire shelf above my washer and dryer, where I keep the baskets.
As a result, I don’t need to hold the basket while placing the clothes in the washer. Rather, I use the wire shelf to hold the baskets.
6. Install a table above your washing machine to fold clothes
I installed a small table or surface to fold my clothes. I used the space above my washer and dryer as the space is unused.
It helps me to fold my clothes right away when I am in a hurry.
7. Make proper use of the space between your washer and dryer
There is always a tiny gap between the washer and the dryer. Well, I made a tiny cabinet, and I use it whenever I need to.
The purpose of making the cabinet was to make the full use of the space in my laundry room.
8. Don’t forget to install a few towel hooks in the wall
I installed around 5 towel hooks in one of the walls of my laundry room. The towel hooks come in great help whenever I need to hang any of my clothes.

You can use the space in your ceiling properly by making a hanging drying rack. You can purchase one from George and Willy.
On the other hand, you can make yourself one if you are comfortable doing woodworks.

I use glass containers to store all the liquid soaps and detergent. I use little colorful ribbons to decorate them as well.
Using glass containers will let you find your desired cleaning product at the right time.
12. Label the cleaning products
For me, labeling is one of the best ways to stay organized. Just like my kitchen, I label my cleaning items as well.

There is a separate corner in my laundry room to keep my ironing board. I always prefer to iron my clothes at once. As a result, it saves me a lot of time.
If you want, you can use the table above your washer and dryer as an ironing board.

Well, you will need quite a large space to store all of your cleaning products. Place the paper towels, detergent, soap, washing powder in a rack.
Also, make sure the rack is near your washer so that you can reach it easily.

There is no alternative to adding shelves in the laundry room. The more shelves you will have, the more organized you will be.
You can place flower vases or pictures on these shelves. Or you can use them to store your items.
18. Label the drawers and baskets
I love the transparent labels that I purchased from the dollar store. I keep my detergent, soap, washing powder, etc. separately.
As a result, it used to take me quite a time to find the right product at the right time. after I started to label the drawers and the baskets, I find them in not.
